Lower back pain can be debilitating and is something that can affect people of all ages. In fact 80% of people will experience low back pain at some point in their lives. So often, it is not a case of if you will experience low back pain, but rather when. How you have your low back pain treated will consequently affect pain relief and even prevention of future low back pain. Low back pain can be severe and sudden, or aching and dull, and the causes vast, ranging from traumatic injury, accumulated repetitive strain, to faulty biomechanics. Two important treatments for low back pain can include both chiropractic treatment and registered massage therapy.
Chiropractic is a health care profession focused on the non-surgical treatment of disorders of the nervous system and/or musculoskeletal system, focusing greatly on spinal manipulation and treatment of surrounding structures. Many studies support the conclusion that manual therapies such as chiropractic are effective for treatment of low back pain, as well as for treatment for herniated discs within the lumbar vertebrae (spinal vertebrae in the low back). Spinal manipulation and chiropractic mobilization (movement and stretching of the muscles and joints) are effective in improving functionality, reducing nerve irritability, and restoring range of motion, all of which will help to alleviate low back pain.
